Vincent de Rooij & Csilla Lakatos

Short multimedia performance

Vincent de Rooij, actor, object and video artist, transforms the everyday world of things and materiality into absurdly poetic stage spectacles. Regular UNIDRAM visitors may remember his short performances Fly (2008) and Track (2009). The Hungarian Csilla Lakatos, a trained dancer, worked for many years with the Dutch theatre group Dogtroep, which strongly influenced the development of visual theatre in the Netherlands.

Vioollusion is the story of a man who lives in his violin with a desk, bed and toilet. It is a story about the transformation of a human into a musician, about the construction and tuning of a violin, about being strung along and about why the violin doesn’t add another string to your bow. With short tableaus and improvised pencil sketches, live-recorded film images and projections, as well as music from Bach and Paganini (performed live on a violin made in Potsdam in 1935), Vioollusion is like a violin lesson with a drunk teacher, and undoubtedly the most bizarre lesson of its kind you are ever likely to experience.
